My wife got an email from Nate‘s wife with a picture of me at the Flex Bugquash. Thankfully, without an identifying caption.
That’s my rickety old Gateway laptop sporting Windows Vista. I think one other person there had an HP with Windows, but otherwise it was wall to wall Macbooks. Unfortunately, that meant I spent a lot of time troubleshooting problems without tech support. Wifi didn’t work for me either at the Adobe campus, once all the Macs showed up. Apparently there’s a prioritization.
Anyway, there were lots of snacks (I had 3 times my share of M&Ms), lots of hacking, and while I didn’t get a patch submitted to fix a bug, I learned how to hack the Flex SDK, and got some unit tests around DateFormatter running.
I’m now a lot more comfortable in Flex and am incorporating what I learned with Sprouts and Fluint. I finally feel comfortable enough to work on automating a Flex build & test suite.

Too bad they didn’t post the shot they caught of me picking my nose. It was a keeper
